Fans wonder which blockbusters should have been split into two

For a brief moment, paying customers feared that the conclusion of every great franchise would end up splitting its final chapter in half. Of course, we’ve been told this was a decision made entirely for creative purposes, but it’s not like anyone bought the party line for even a second.

Ultimately, the film industry is all about making as much money as possible, so the call to cleave the Grand Finals at Harry Potter, Duskand hunger games the twain sagas were about as transparent and cynical as they come, though box office returns point out that people were more than happy to take two trips to the theater anyway.

Splitting a film into two is a completely different thing from two standalone projects that exist as two parts of the same story, with Avengers: Infinity War and End of Game, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and At the end of the worldand The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions fall into the latter camp.

Combining the two sides of the argument into one tidy, argumentative package, fans debated which films would have benefited the most from being released in two individual features, with the epic The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King start things off.

water world is certainly the most curious addition to the discussion, but it makes sense considering the underrated epic has shot more than enough footage to warrant its inclusion. The overwhelming opinion is that it’s not really necessary to split a project in two for non-commercial reasons, which we would certainly agree with.
